Interesting concerning the walls around the beach. I emailed the IPO and asked if the walls would be down when we arrive on July 16. The following was their response. "Due to the construction of The Villas at The Grand Floridian Resort & Spa, the walls near the beach and the beach pool will still be up during your stay in July. At this time, there is no timetable as to when the walls will come down. Our Best Regards, Concierge Itinerary Planning Office Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa" I sure hope the IPO is wrong!
